Spring Resolution: Back Up Your Data

I hate backing up. I do it, but I hate it. If you’re not running backups, you’re courting heartache. My cautionary tale: A few years ago, my brother and I were editing our first indie feature. Our data got corrupted. Nothing was backed up. We lost three months of post-production—the entire film. Starting from scratch nearly killed us. Don’t let it happen to you.
Data loss is more than an inconvenience—it can be emotionally debilitating. Losing a paper for class or a report for work is never great, but losing personal digital media is much, much worse. Imagine turning on your computer and no longer having your library of digital photos, music, and video. No more holiday pictures of friends and family; no mp3s of the time your band opened for Russian Vogue; no video of your backpacking expedition across Europe. Your new resolution: Back up. It’s not as hard as you might think.

The Apple Flux Capacitor

Companies like Apple make backup quite easy. If you’re running Mac OS X Leopard or later, your computer is already set up with Time Machine. Plug in an external hard drive, and your Mac will ask if you’d like to use it to back up your system. You can set the parameters for when and how often you’d like to back up.
Time Machine saves multiple versions of your system, so it’s just as easy to locate a file that you created yesterday as one from last spring. The interface makes restoring files fun; the view is like riding shotgun in the Millennium Falcon. If your entire system goes down, the information on the external drive can easily be ported to a new Mac at startup. Everything from your computer (applications, desktop, iTunes library) will appear just as you left it.
